(NEW YORK) Spring has seriously sprung, if the dizzying crush of celebs at Nur Khan and Harry Josh's Spring Fling blowout on Saturday night at Hiro is any indication. The infamously rollicking pre-party for last night's Met Gala, started a decade ago by Khan, Josh and Gisele Bündchen, was a must-drop-by stop on the fabulous crowd's Saturday eve itineraries, judging by the likes of Fergie, Leo DiCaprio, Eva Mendes, Jessica Biel, Ashley Olsen, Will Smith, Ellen Pompeo, Zoe Saldana, Mickey Rourke and Helena Christensen - and that's just the tip of the tiptop invite iceberg.  

The cavernous subterranean joint beneath the Maritime Hotel resembled a swank middle school dance for the first hour or so (if middle school dances involved Svedka-spiked cocktails, throngs of models and an elite guest list of A-listers and starry fashion stalwarts, that is). The massive but empty dance floor flanked by barflies bellying up for standard-issue libations and champagne flutes splashed with vodka (!) to the left, and the growing gaggle of celebs in the booths to the right. As for the fashion flock? Oh, let Chic count the runway-ruling names... Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, Prabal Gurung, Richard Chai, ADAM's Adam Lippes and Whitney Port. If your head isn't spinning yet, a few more for the record: a duo of Restoin-Roitfelds (Julia and Vladimir; Carine didn't jet in for the occasion, sadly), a couple of Kings of Leon, Brad Goreski, a giddy white tennis sweater-donning Joe Zee, Terry Richardson and Angela Lindvall. Whew!

Although Chic kept the recorder off and focused on the fun at this particular soiree, it bears mentioning that Ms. Bündchen tips bathroom attendants with gusto and generosity and seems like the enthusiastic gal who rallies up the gang (the gang being a posse of models with equally endless gams). She was overheard planning and plotting a night of endless dancing post-Spring Fling, followed by a big picnic in the park the next morning. Aw!

How Much Is That Daphne In The Window?

Daphne Guinness remembered her dear friend Alexander McQueen in a subtle and understated manner yesterday at Barneys New York, where she got dressed for the Met gala in the windows of the Madison Avenue store. The stunt marks the beginning of a six-week installation that will showcase her personal collection of McQueen's items that she purchased from the estate of Isabella Blow after her death. If you are hoping for a glimpse of Daphne in the windows, we're sad to report this was a one-time-only appearance.

The unofficial after party for the Met Ball was held at (where else?) the Top of The Standard at the Standard Hotel last night. Singer Bruno Mars was there (naturally), and he knew he was in the presence of fashion royalty when he bowed down to the queen herself, Naomi Campbell. She loved every minute of it.

Now that she's a household name in America, all eyes are on Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton. The freshly appointed fashion superstar was obviously at the Met Gala last night, and apparently, she didn't do interviews on the red carpet, but that's OK. What on earth would anybody have to ask her about, anyway?

Alexa Chung makes her second appearance on the cover of British Vogue, as photographed by Josh Olins. The mag teases that Chung reveals an obsession for horseback riding when she was younger, but now, she harbors a love for (are you sitting?) making things. Sounds like a must-read!

That's quite a shot of Cameron Diaz on the June issue of Elle UK. Everything about this cover gives us a Madonna vibe (particularly the crotch shot), and we're very impressed with the ultra-toned arms of Ms. Diaz. Sexy! You'd make Madge proud.
